Rate Limit Glacier backup

Postby dancormack » Tue Feb 28, 2017 10:17 pm

I am using Amazon Glacier backup on a Synology NAS for storing backups of data. I have a significant amount of new data each day being created. The backups are spiking bandwidth which is causing a surcharge at our hosting facility as it's exceeding our subscribed bandwidth.

Is there a way to limit the throughput of the Glacier backups while leaving the bandwidth of other applications unrestricted? I see that there are settings for the built-in applications and would appreciate seeing Synology add the Glacier backup to that list as it's an official Synology application.
